Extract Specific Characters from Text File
Posted 30 March 2012 - 09:14 PM
I have several hundred text files and am looking to extract a specific piece of information from each file. The information is contained in the exact same position (line and column) in each text file, but the contents of the information differs.
The files are named sequentially, starting at 001.txt up to something like 356.txt and the information in each file that I would like is contained at line 637, column 75 and ends at line 637, column 205.
What I am after is some sort of batch file where I can drag and drop each text file, preferably multiple at a time, onto the batch file and it extracts the specific piece of infomration I require and saves each extract into its own text file named, for example, 001_output.txt.
Is this possible?
